30 Weeks of Pregnancy
Feeling overwhelmed by all the choices and advice from friends and relatives about your new baby? What to do? What to buy? The video by the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission includes safety advice for new and expectant parents on shopping for nursery products/equipment including cribs, play yards, high chairs and strollers. It also contains the latest updates on federal standards for these nursery products.
Once you reach your third trimester of pregnancy, it's time to start planning for your baby's birth. Whether you intend to go with conventional or natural childbirth, it's important to familiarize yourself with methods of pain management during labor and delivery. A class offered by your provider, hospital, or birth center can educate you about your options, as can instruction from a childbirth educator or a doula.
